Scotland assistant Peter Houston has hit out at the SFA as they continue to prevaricate over Craig Levein's future as national team coach.

The seven-man SFA board have been deliberating for several weeks over whether the former Hearts and Dundee United manager should keep his job.

Levein, whose contract runs until summer 2014, has won only three of 12 competitive matches in his three-year tenure - two against Liechtenstein and one over Lithuania.

"It is up to the SFA who have had plenty of time to discuss it and that decision might come on Monday," Houston said.

"There is a decision to be made. You either want to keep Craig Levein as manager or you want to remove him.

"It shouldn't take two or three days of conference calls to do that. Is it nearly three weeks since the Belgium game?

"Fair enough, the SFA were wanting to let the whole situation calm down a bit but it shouldn't be that hard to make that decision.

"I still regard Craig Levein as one of the top managers in the game, I have worked with him so long, I know how good he is and I would like him to get that opportunity to stay on."

Scotland face Luxembourg in an away friendly on 14 November and do not have another qualifier until hosting Wales in March.
